A site on the Somerset coast selected by Charles Rothschild for its scarce plants and as an example of shingle beach. Notified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) today, Porlock Bay has nationally important saltmarsh and vegetated shingle habitats. The site is regularly visited by grey heron, little egret, shelduck, lapwing and curlew. The scarce Babington’s leek is also found here. It falls within Exmoor National Park and is managed by the Park Authority.
